You look at amount of physical memory allocated to process. Windows
may swap it out if another processes needs memory. Amount of virtual
memory must be near the same

Why do you want to configure it ? If FB will grab all physical memory then
another processes can't run. If you have no another memory consuming
processes in system then Windows wouldn't swap out FB's physical memory
